Default Love Your S'elf/ A FREE Podcast Tutorial featuring Lauscha Caramello

Our FIRST Podcast Tutorial...
http://www.fireladyproductions.com/S..._Tutorial.html

For a very long time I've considered the podcast potential for creating "enhanced tutorials". So here we go. Watch! Look! And Listen!

Suzie Fitzwater shares how she constructs her S'elf. It's just the CUTEST little flameworked Elf on a mandrel.

We created this tutorial to feature the flesh tones of Lauscha's CARAMELLO.

If YOU have great photos, can speak in full sentences, and have a tutorial you think would translate well as a podcast, contact me at firelady@gate.net.

We're celebrating the release of this multi-media tutorial with a 30% off Sale on Caramello at www.firelady.com

I am so excited to have finally launched the "Glasscaster Tutorial" concept. Whew! Hope you enjoy it.

I didn't know Marcia would announce it here. Although, I don't know why I thought that?

Now I'm all embarrassed. I guess I thought only total strangers would see it!

OMG! Now you all will know what I sound like!

And I can't even get it to play for me! LOL

Default Link!

If you're having trouble, just go to:
www.fireladyproductions.com
Click: Podcasts
You'll see it listed there. Click on it.

For some inexplicable reason the page takes a long time to load.
It's not that long, or that big a file. When I get back next week
I'll see if I can change a setting or something to make it quicker.

But have patience! It works!

And by the way, I think you sound absolutely awesome!

Good night!



Marcie

I couldn't get it to play in firefox. You might want to check that out. It would not play at all in firefox even though it is the most up to date version. The Quick time Q came up but that was it. It then went back to a blank screen. Played ok in IE.

Cool Tut by the way. Congratulations Soupy. Such a cutie.

Hey Suzie,

What a wonderful tut! I had a blast watching it and just had to try one. (I think your voice sounds great!)

So, here is my first s'elf, his little bum is a little off center, but oh well.



thanks so much for the tut!!!! Thanks also to Marcie for putting the podcast together!

Peggy

Peggy, excellent job! Oh man, I LOVE your flowers!!! And his bum doesn't look off center at all, but (butt?) I know what you mean. Fortunately, no one will ever notice because they'll be SO impressed with him.

Peggy, that S'elf is perfect!

I am so thrilled that you're all having so much fun and enjoying the tutorial.

I just tried it on Firefox and it actually loaded and began playing for me much faster than in Safari, where it typically takes a bit of time to get started.

And so.....what kind of tutorials do we need?

Please suggest ideas, and also artists who would be suitable.

Suzie has the greatest dynamic range to her voice and she has such
a terrific delivery/narration style.

Hey Sue.....want to do more????


Marcie

Well, I have one more S'elf, to show. Suzie, you are so right, pink is just way tooooo pink. I used a "melon pink" I have, lauscha and it went in the kiln a translucent fleshy pink, but came out this......



He is cute, but just a little too pink. I think I am going to call these guys wood elves, they are a little more elongated than your cute little S'elfs.

I can't say thanks enough for your tut!

tail wags,
Peggy

Marcie, OMG! Do you know what agony it was doing one?!! And you want me to do another?! Yikes!!! To tell you the truth, I don't know what else I could teach, *shrug*, but I'd be willing to give anything a try.


Wow Peggy! You are zooming!
I've found pinks can be very dangerous. However, if you use colors on purpose, they can turn out fun, like a little green guy or orange guy. Oh, and moretti light brown makes a really cute S'Elf.


Meow Sue, Beware of "sweet" voices! Voices can be deceiving of personalities.
And yes I have to agree with you, the watermelon S'Elf turned out really cute.
I'm seriously thinking about a pdf tut for people like me who need step by step pictures right at the torch.

Hi Fran!

If you need Caramello, I ship to Canada all the time.
And Caramello is currently on sale. It's usually $36.50 US, but
right now it's selling for $25.55 lb.

You can find it at:
http://www.firelady.com/proddetail.a...30%5FCaramello

It's one of my favorite colors...

Got it! Thanks so much!

I did just receive a notification that the automatic email sent to you acknowledging your order failed. Should I try to resend it to: info@dragonfirebeads.com???

Please let me know. Anyway, I am, here and in person....virtually acknowledging receipt of your order!

Bye for now!

Marcie
